Claire's Camera

Claire's Camera

Isabelle Huppert (Elle) and Kim Min-hee (The Handmaiden) lead this comic drama set at the Cannes Film Festival, and shot while both actors were there for their respective films in 2016.

"On a business trip to the Cannes Film Festival, Manhee (Kim) is accused of being dishonest, and fired. A teacher named Claire (Huppert) goes around taking photos with a Polaroid camera. She gets to know Manhee and sympathises with her. Claire is like a person who can see Manhee's possible future or past selves, through the mysterious power of the beach tunnel. Through taking photos, Claire has acquired the ability to look slowly at things, and to transform objects. Now, Claire goes with Manhee to the café where she was fired. We look forward to seeing Claire's power at work." (Cannes Film Festival)

A trifle compared to such recent Hong highs as "Right Now, Wrong Then" and "On the Beach at Night Alone," but a complete work on its own light terms.

Hong distills vast emotional crises and creative self-recognitions into confessional monologues, pugnacious discussions, and luminous aphorisms.

Ms. Huppert's presence - steady, warm, thoughtful but with a casual air - keeps the entire enterprise classically comedic.

The breezy Claire's Camera isn't only charming and funny, but also one of Hong's most formally intuitive and sharply written films in some time.

It ultimately feels dashed and somewhat shallow.

A short and sweet divertissement with a few profound punchlines.
